Yesterday's free stuff post was still quite long, so I'm gonna try short and sweet again. :)
Free Ruby on Rails Ebook
SitePoint is giving away a free Ruby on Rails (RoR) Ebook by Patrick Lenz. It's a quick 20Mb download and you'll get a PDF file with about 400+ pages of RoR goodness (maybe less due to a bit of advertising thrown in). You do need to enter your email first (remember to unsubscribe later), but that's a small sacrifice for a free book. Although it is a static download link, I'll refrain from posting it. Here's the email you'll get:

Free tangible modelling tools 1.0
Tangible is offering version 1 of tangible modelling tools for free. Tangible modelling tools is a UML tool for creating UML models such as activity diagrams. You could use Microsoft Visio to do the job, but you'd also have to pay for it. :) Unfortunately, even though tangible modelling tools is free of charge, it requires Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Standard or better, which isn't so free. I guess it's the lesser of the evils if you already use Visual Studio.
Free Nintendo DS Feather Pen Stylus
Nintendo wants to know what you think about The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and give you a free Nintendo DS Feather Pen Stylus in the process. It may be just a feathery-shaped piece of plastic, but at least that's something. Of course, you'll also need to own the game, register it online and live in the US or Canada to qualify. Who says getting free stuff is easy? :)

Well, you know the drill - links could disappear and gray area of the law (Images above are clickable in case you didn't notice). Enough said.
